Terms and Conditions of Enrolment

course overview

This hands-on workshop explores using movement as a tool for image-making, and motion as an intentional characteristic of drawing. Todd Fuller teaches you how to enliven static drawings through a range of drawing exercises with a moving life model, and how to map, track and trace movement for dynamic compositions and imagery. Then, as you use your own iPad, he guides you through a series of simple animation exercises and practical methods to bring motion to the motionless. The workshop is designed for entry-level students as well as those with existing knowledge of the medium who would like to interrogate their drawing practice further.

teacher profile

Todd Fuller’s practice integrates sculpture, animation, drawing, performance and painting to construct layered, multidisciplinary narratives. His work considers notions of gender, commonality and difference, power and place within the human condition and an Australian setting. He has exhibited across Australia and abroad, including the USA, Italy, South Korea, Bangladesh, England and Singapore, and has undertaken international residencies at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris and the British School at Rome. He has also undertaken domestic residencies at Bundanon, Grafton, Hill End and Blacktown. Todd has a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Hons) from the National Art School and was awarded an honourable mention at the 15th Asian Art Biennale. In 2016 he presented a site-specific installation with Tasmanian artist Karin Chan as a part of Dark Mofo. Todd is represented by MAY SPACE, Sydney. Todd’s works are exhibited in Hardenvale – our home in absurdia, at the National Art School Gallery with artists Catherine O’Donnell and Kellie O’Dempsey in 2019.
